Meet Philip Carlson: NYC Talent Agent Who Found Philip Seymour Hoffman, Claire Danes, Idris Elba and More

In this film from one of our favorite local video producers Chris Ming Ryan and his company Wheelhouse Communications, learn all about Philip Carlson, the New York City talent scout and agent that discovered Philip Seymour Hoffman, Claire Danes, Billy Crudup, Liev Schreiber, Idris Elba and more.

He was a manager then agent for nearly 30 years based in New York City at small agencies. […] After my friend […] gave me Phil's book […] I asked to meet with Phil to record some of his stories. […] Phil's lifetime work of finding raw talent before anyone else and then standing by that person through thick and thin struck a chord. […] Phil's incredible nose for talent, his loyalty and his dedication to actors comprise a story that I'm thrilled to tell.
